XSEED Games today announced that the horror adventure Corpse Party is now available for PC on Steam, GOG.com, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with exclusive content and features. Originally developed as an indie title by Team GrisGris, and previously released by XSEED Games for the PSP, Corpse Party is a visual novel-style experience that takes players on a journey where each step could be their last.
Localized directly from the original indie PC version known as Corpse Party: BloodCovered, which has never been released outside of Japan, this PC release of Corpse Party features all of the original Windows art and voice-acting, as well as new features exclusive to this version. Among other inclusions, such as multiple endings and scenes that differ from the PSP and upcoming Nintendo 3DS releases, this version boasts four bonus chapters on top of the game’s five main story chapters. One of these is a PC-exclusive retelling of the “Tooth” story from Corpse Party: Book of Shadows, recreated with added content in classic Corpse Party adventure style.
John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack today announced BLACKROOM, a shooter that harkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and weaponized combat. Use fast, skillful movement to dodge enemy attacks, circle-strafe your foes, and rule the air as you rocket jump in the single- and multiplayer modes. Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and fully moddable on PC, the game is being developed with community at its core, starting with today’s launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund development.
In the single-player campaign, step into the shoes of Santiago Sonora, Chief hNode Engineer at HOXAR, Inc., the world’s foremost creator of holographic simulations. The company’s BLACKROOM technology allows users to be anywhere at any time, creating fully-realized holographic worlds that are indistinguishable from reality, all inside of a giant black room. When testing of their new leading-edge Predictive Memory technology reveals troubling anomalies that blend the real world with the virtual, you’re sent in to investigate and are swept across a dangerous array of simulations developed for BLACKROOM users, from medieval castles to horror sets. Peering into your mind and tapping into your deepest memories and fears, however, it’s clear that the BLACKROOM is not all fun and games.
BLACKROOM is targeted for release in winter 2018 on PC, DRM-free and on Steam.
